Despite these harsh conditions, DTE’s 277 wind turbines performed at nearly full capacity all week long.

Listen to Dennis Buda, manager of wind fleet maintenance for our Renewable Energy team, talk about how the turbines performed during the blast of arctic cold and the steps DTE took to ensure the safety of its renewable energy operations and maintenance team.
